Well the drive is off and the engine completely unbolted and ready to be pulled. Rain tomorrow which is ok as I need a break. Not the vacation week I had planned. Still undecided on repower plan, considering a power pack, new vortec long block carb, ignition.

Drive shaft slides into coupler on back of the engine. One could pull the engine with it installed but the alignment must be checked when the engine goes back in so the drive will to be off anyway.

Thought about it but ordered a new 350 Votec long block today. Thinking of a half closed cooling system as well. Also when the engine is out I'll replace the hot water heater and plastic thru hulls that are flaking.

There were some heat exchangers for sale around Annapolis a few months ago on craigslist. I just finished converting my two 7.4Ls. Pretty easy.

Was the original engine a 5.0/305?

Yea, good time to replace all the questionable bits while you have the space to get to them.
